Is it me, or were several of the voices heard meant to represent several radio stars of the day?

What was the Little Flower reference to? I know there was a show called 'Hour of the Little Flower', but could not find any references to it being, well, a stepin fetchit type of show.

Love the breakdown of comedic devices used in the short, with the two magpies saying "Let's Do It Again!" and beating the two main characters senseless again...

Comments?

Does anyone else see the racial aspect of this cartoon? Here is this white guy and his dog minding their own business and a black(bird) couple moves into a cheap nest next door with the aid of a sleazy real-estate broker.
The man and his dog end up getting driven out of their house. Hmmmm . . . .

Awww, that was very cute!

I used to listen to Jack Cullen's "Owl Prowl" on CKNW 98, remember him Spuzz? I reconized "The Bickersons, The Shadow, Walter Winchell, and Amos and Andy.

Spuzz, do you remember the J.P. Patches show on KIRO 7 in Seattle, he used to play those cartoons all the time. It brought back some happy memories.

Thanks.

Yeah, Jack Cullen ruled.. They still play oldtime radio on 98, but it's somehow not the same..

When was that show on Kiro? I've only been here for the past 12 years..

If I was to see a cartoon like that in Calgary, I'd probably go into the mall into one of those Cartoon Huts, where you would pay a dollar sit in a 'house' and watch a cartoon.

Sorry for not replying sooner. J.P. Patches http://www.jppatches.com/ was a fixture on KIRO from 1958 to 1981, and he even had a shout out from Krusty the Klown on the Simpsons.

I started becoming a Patches Pal in 1970, and I met him at a Shakey's Pizza Parlour in the mid 70's.

He is in semi-retirement today.
